All 32 public libraries in San Mateo County from Daly City to East Palo Alto are participating in the 2017 Summer Learning Challenge -- a fun and free way to engage children and students by challenging them to read as many books as possible and to expore new activities and ideas. Sign up at summerlearners.org, at any public library or when the Bookmobile comes your way.

Participants receive a free book just for signing up. 

It’s all in the name of fun but the Summer Learning Challenge offers the type of benefits parents appreciate: a halt to what’s known as the “summer slide,” or the loss in some of the achievement gains students made during the school year.
